  • Tom Silverstein reports that Packers contract negotiator Russ Ball met with Clay Matthews‘ agent, David Dunn, at the Combine. Silverstein suspects they could be talking about a potential return for Matthews.
  • A source close to Packers OLB Nick Perry tells Rob Demovsky that he wouldn’t be surprised if Green Bay declined to pay the $4.8 million roster bonus owed to Perry on March 15. However, Demovsky’s source added that he wasn’t sure if the Packers would offer a restructured contract to Perry or just move on.

  • Silverstein reports that the Packers have interest in re-signing S Ibraheim Campbell. Campbell suffered a torn ACL late last season, but it’s possible he could be ready to return for training camp.
  • Tom Silverstein reports that the Packers are not interested in re-signing veteran CB Davon House

Vikings GM Rick Spielman said C Nick Easton is expected to be medically cleared from a herniated disc in his neck to continue playing in 2019. 

I’m not going to talk about game-planning or anything like that, but medically he should be cleared,” said Spielman, via Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune

Spielman confirmed that Easton recently visited his doctor and will be cleared.

[Easton] just went out to his doctor, he’ll be cleared,” said Spielman.
